For the love of golf

Four championship golf courses spread across our coastal landscape. Designed by golf legends Nicklaus Design, P.B. Dye, Hale Irwin and Tim Cate, our elite private courses are highly acclaimed. One easy membership gives you full access. 

Acing The Tennis Lifestyle

With a total of 13 Har-tru courts spread throughout the community, St. James serves up a tennis lover’s paradise. While all courts have crisp greens, underground irrigation, and lights for night play, the true heart of tennis at St. James lives at the Founders Club.

Pickleball Anyone?

If you haven’t seen the game in action, pickleball is making quite the “racquet” here at St. James. This quick-moving, high intensity sport has gained popularity. The newest facility has its own private area and bathroom facility, enhancing your space to prepare or wind down from the game.

Cycle the plantation, partake in a game of pickleball, tennis, or golf.
